I just had my second etsy front page experience! (Well second time for one of my items to be on the front page. third experience including the treasury I curated last week!) I think my notebook was up for almost exactly one hour, from about 10:45 to 11:45am. This brought about 17 new hearts for the shop, 18 hearts for the notepad itself and something close to 330 new views of the notepad. Additionally several people added other items from my shop to their favorites, the majority of which were other paper goods.
I'm running through the stats just because I think it's kind of interesting to think about the impact being on the front page has on a shop. I've been making an effort to list a few items a day for the past several days, but that certainly doesn't bring people in at the same rate! This was kind of an interesting experience since I was an alternate choice in the treasury. I saw the little gray star next to this treasury yesterday and it filled me with suspense to know which item had been chosen. I promptly tried searching through the curator's favorites but didn't see any of my items. Having the item show up on the front page was a pretty excellent way to see that mystery resolved!
So far this hasn't resulted in any immediate sales, but it sure made me happy anyway. There's something pretty neat about how Etsy is set up & I am sure to spend a bunch of time looking at the shops and favorites of all my new hearts!
